There are a number of exclusive foods like that. Fugu (poisonous pufferfish) is really bland.
I had fugu exactly once, at a restaurant in Japan. It was some of the best sashimi I've ever tasted. Subtle, yes. Bland, no.

Japanese food is not like American food. Americans go for BIG FLAVORS. Thick sauces that sometimes drown out the food they are on. Japanese food is pure and delicate.
